BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Tröegs Brewing Company
Pennsylvania, United States
troegs.com

Style: Tripel

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.00%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Inspired by nature's untamed beauty, LaGrave (pronounced \l?-gräv\) is the first of our 12.7-oz. corked and caged bottle releases. Bottle conditioned and highly carbonated, this Triple Golden Ale is steeped in the tradition of strong ales originally brewed in Belgium. The unique Belgian yeast forms the bedrock of LaGrave’s complex flavors. Strong and alluring at 8% ABV, LaGrave boasts a sweet, fruity flavor with a well-rounded mouthfeel and semi-dry, lingering bitter finish.

3.51/5  rDev -10.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

This brew pours a hazy, opaque golden straw color with a 4 finger head which lasts for some time. There are remnants of the head which remain on the top of the beer until the end. There is also thick lacing; the thickest lacing I have ever seen on a Tripel.

The smell is wet hay, bready malt, cotton candy, (sugar) and some piney hops.

The taste follows the nose with yeast, malt and sugar dominating. There is some fruit, I believe apples and pears, but the fruit taste is not very strong. Mild piney hops come in at the end.

The mouthfeel is thick and bready but at the same time creamy. The beer goes down smoothly but as advertised there is a slightly bitter and dry aftertaste.

Overall this is a decent Tripel; I am not really a fan of the style but I am a fan of Troegs and this beer turned out well. If Troegs would make the fruit more dominant and not leave such a dry bitterness at the end this would be better.

Heed the bottle's warning: pour it slowly and carefully. Everything about the beer is above average, but it leaves just a hint of aftertaste that isn't as smooth as the rest of it. It's a very good beer from a cool little brewery, and I'd drink it again.

3.65/5  rDev -6.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: 1/2 inch head, clear, straw yellow in color, high carbonation

Smell: apples and hay

Taste: honey, and Belgian spices, apples, and hay.

Mouthfeel: sweet with a funkiness, light bodied with high carbonation

Overall: An above average triple with nice apple and hay flavorings. Tasty, but I have had better in the style. Certainly worth a try, but I will reach for other favorites.
